LOST – MISSING – STOLEN

Families and descendants are looking for their ancestor’s missing medals

When we commemorate the service and sacrifices of the men, women and animals who served during the First World War (the so called “Great War” or “War to end all Wars” – it was neither ‘great’ nor did it ‘end all wars’ ! – we do so by remembering and honouring the memory of those who served, and in particular those whose lives were cut short because they paid the ultimate price.  We, the descendants of those veteran men and women, many long forgotten, and those of more recent times, have an obligation to never forget their contribution.  It was they who answered the call to fight and die for the security of this country and the preservation of the freedoms we continue to enjoy.

Regrettably many of the medals and mementos given to them for their service, or to the grief stricken families of the dead, have been lost, sold, stolen, abandoned and even given away over the years after they were issued.  A good number survive in private collections and museums both in New Zealand and world-wide.  Some are traded or auctioned on the internet whilst others can still be found randomly in all manner of places.   

Interest in finding family medals, particularly of WW1 and WW2 veterans, has never been greater.  To be able to wear the medals of a veteran family member can be a source of great personal and family pride.  While attendance at an occasion of Remembrance is all about honouring and remembering those no longer alive who served (and/or died as a result of that service), by wearing a veteran’s medals at these times is a visible and very tangible way of connecting with the memory of your veteran.  When our older children attend such occasions wearing a veterans medals, they are visibly educating their juniors by demonstrating the traditions and protocol expected when wearing medals.  Finding missing family medals should be a priority for every family – the longer they remain missing, the harder they are to recover.  Remember, wearing a family veteran’s medals with respect and dignity is one way you can demonstrate to others, your loss, your pride and the esteem in which you hold the memory of that veteran in for the selfless sacrifices they made on our behalf. 

Do you know whom in your family served in the military forces?  ~  Do you know where their medals are?

Requests to find family medals 

MRNZ is contacted regularly by families throughout New Zealand and overseas with requests to find family medals that have been Lost, are Missing or Stolen.  Whilst we work hard at finding a family or descendant whom we can reunite with medals that have been found/donated, the research time involved for these cases alone does not allow any time to undertake individual searches for family medals.  We can however provide you with advice on ‘how and where’ to undertake your own search.  

Collectors, Owners and Traders of L-M-S medals

The medals listed below are wanted by families and descendants who have proven their identity and ancestral connection to the person named on the medal, to our satisfaction.  If you as a medal collector, owner or trader have any of the medals listed below, and are willing to return or offer the medals for BUY-BACK then I would be very pleased to hear from you.  Please contact me to arrange the details of any such offer for the family concerned.  Your anonymity in any such transaction is assured. 

Listing your L-M-S medals

You are welcome to list your L-M-S medals on this page for FREE.  We will contact you in the event the medals become available/are offered for BUY-BACK from the owner. 

When making a request to list medals, please indicate if you are willing to consider a BUY-BACK of the medals if offered, and/or if you are prepared to offer a REWARD for the opportunity of getting the medals back (no amount need be specified). 

When you make contact with MRNZ to list a medal, please provide as much of the following information as you can which will help us to help you:

  • Full Name of medal Recipient; which War/Conflict (e.g. Boer, WW1, WW2, Other); which Military Service (e.g. NZ – Army; UK – Royal Navy etc)
  • If WW2 service medals, were they Named (privately engraved/impressed) – Yes/No/Unknown; When was the last time medals were seen – year/month/date (if known); Where were they last seen ?
  • If posted, was the item Tracked or Signature Required ?
  • Are you prepared to BUY-BACK the medals if offered – Yes/No ?
  • Are you prepared to offer a REWARD additional to the buy-back price, for the medals – Yes/No ?  
  • Your contact details are:  Name,  Address,  E-mail,  Mobile phone  or  Telephone Number

Second World War Medals (WW2)

All First World War medals were officially named to the individual service man or woman before being issued.  WW2 campaign and service medals awarded to NZ and UK service men and women were issued UN-NAMED.  This was a governmental decision of the day based on perceived expense.  Australia, Canada and South Africa governments chose to NAME the medals awarded to their service men and women.  Unless you know the medals you wish to list as lost or missing, were named (officially or privately engraved), they are unlikely ever to be identified without some other link or means of identification / proof.  If this is the case with your lost or missing medals, there is no point in listing them.  If your WW2 medals included a Gallantry, Meritorious or Long Service medal(s), please discuss your situation with us as these medals normally were NAMED.  If in doubt, we will be happy to advise and answer your questions.

Replacing Missing Medals

If you would like a replacement medal, or set of medals (2 or more medals), to wear as an interim measure pending the return of your missing ones, MRNZ’s Brian Ramsay can arrange Replica replacements (full size or miniature) and any associated emblems or clasps you may require.  These are a relatively inexpensive option that Brian can also suitably mount for wearing.    

Medal Mounting Service

MRNZ’s Brian Ramsay is the Nelson RSA’s medal mounting expert and a private contractor who will also mount medals for the public on request.  This service he provides at cost.**  MRNZ does not derive any revenue from Brian’s mounting services, thereby ensuring our advertised service for reuniting medals with families and descendant kin, remains a 100% not-for-profit service, free from any fees or charges. 

If you require medals:

  • Mounted (Swing or Court style) on a brooch bar for wearing
  • Re-mounted, ribbons replaced, or additional medals added to an existing medal or group
  • Repaired or the brooch bar replaced, or
  • Full size or miniature, or replacements for missing/lost medals
  • Replica medals or medal groups for gifts to family members …. then Brian can help you.  While Brian does not personally frame medals for wall displays, we have a local craftsman who is skilled in our specific requirements.  If you would like to know more, you can phone Brian directly, send him an email, or use the Contact Form to outline your needs.
  • Please note: To avoid embarrassment, please do NOT ask Brian to mount unofficial or self-purchased commemorative medals on the same bar as official medals.

Cost **  You pay only for the cost of any medals, ribbons and materials that are required for mounting/cleaning/lacquering, including postage. Costs may be further reduced if Brian can re-use your existing brooch bar and medal ribbons.  Brian does not charge for his time or labour.     

Please note: The NZDF only replaced First World War medals during the lifetime of the former service person.  Current NZDF policy states  medals will only be replaced while the service person is still serving.  The NZDF does not sell Replacement or Replica (copy) medals.  Replacement medals for the NZDF are provided by an overseas civil contractor.  Good quality facsimile medals, full-size and miniature, can be purchased from specialist retailers who can be found on the internet by entering: replica nz war medals – or check the Yellow Pages

Please feel free to ask us for our advice if you are unsure.
